Nebraska Court Interpreter Certification
**Pursuant to Nebraska Supreme Court rule, court interpreters must have no past felony convictions or pending felony criminal charges. In addition, in the preceding 5 years had no misdemeanor convictions or pending charges manifesting a significant deficiency in honesty, trustworthiness, diligence, or reliability. Disposition of any felony charges less than 5 years in the past other than by acquittal or dismissal (e.g., pretrial diversion) shall be the basis for denial of certification. Disposition of misdemeanor charges manifesting a significant deficiency in honesty, trustworthiness, diligence, or reliability less than 5 years in the past other than by acquittal or dismissal (e.g., pretrial diversion) may also preclude work as a court interpreter in this state. If you have questions regarding your qualification to work as a Nebraska court interpreter, please contact Jennifer Verhein at email@example.com
